What We Do

We promote and facilitate voluntary land conservation by working with landowners to keep these priceless lands intact. We also work to leverage the power of education to achieve impact through diverse programs that encourage an ethic of land stewardship through a connection to nature and the outdoors. By investing in Kaniksu Land Trust, you are working with us to create abundant and restorative communities.

Getting our Community


  • KLT is trying something new: proving the relevance of nature and conservation to the broader community by creating authentic opportunities to connect with the land. Nature is a powerful force for change, be it community health and wellness, education, or a long list of other hurdles.

Join us to support healthy, vibrant communities in north Idaho and northwest Montana, while ensuring the viability of our shared landscape into the future.
